Since I was a kid in El Paso, TX and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, I loved creating worlds, imitating characters and scenarios that I saw on TV or in my imagination. That spark and curiosity for imaginary worlds grew into a love for storytelling through performance.
At UC Santa Cruz I hit a goldmine with plays by Lorraine Hansberry, Luis Valdez and Elizabeth Wong among others. Learning about diverse playwrights broke my mind open to the endless ways that our stories and experiences contribute to American life, culture and representation.
In 2010 I graduated from NYU with One Journey, a solo performance on border identity that created opportunities for me to tour theaters, colleges and community centers nationwide. I'm now excited to walk towards focusing my career on TV and film.
